Dulles High JROTC goes to Leadership Camp
Earlier this summer, 22 cadets from Dulles High School’s Junior ROTC returned from an eight day Leadership Learning Academy at Prairie View A&M University. From June 22-29, the cadets began their days at 4:30 a.m. in order to do physical training. Their days ended at 10 p.m. after numerous drill practices, 4-hour long leadership classes, and uniform inspections.
During this time, these cadets learned responsibility and leadership. Since there was an overall total of 330 cadets, they were separated into flights that ate, marched, and lived together. The second and third year cadets had positions to help guide and train the new cadets on how to become better as a whole. Every morning the cadets ran a mile; then they attended a four hour class that educated them on leadership, team work, responsibility, time management, and the ability to improve self confidence within them.
At the end of camp, the flights had a drill competition and awards were given to the flights that did the best. The cadets also had a graduation ceremony for those who completed the academy. Two of ther own cadets graduated with honors, which is exclusively the Top Ten Cadets in the academy.
